Sunrooms, Decks, Porches
Additions can be the trickiest type of project to build. At Gowdy Group Design Build, we tackle these challenges so you do not have to. Challenges that include making sure the old and new align when the old may not be level, plumb, and square; getting the building science and insulation correct to prevent moisture and air quality issues; or designing an addition to make it look consistent with the original house. Our goal throughout is to think through these myriad issues so you can focus on the design.
At Gowdy Group Design Build, we work hard to minimize the disruptions to your life. We carefully consider scheduling changes to minimize the time that certain spaces are under construction.
We will guide you through every step of this major undertaking, so in the end we can make your new dream home addition a realty.
